Spain-based studio Masquespacio completed designing the interiors of the Valencia Lounge Hostel, a hostel of 11 rooms in the old town of Valencia. "We wanted to recreate the feeling for the guests that they were staying in a home, but one that makes them dream, disconnect and live a new experience, while they are enjoying holidays" - says Ana Milena Hernández Palacios, creative director of Masquespacio.
The intervention realized by Masquespacio in the Valencia Lounge Hostel starts with a study of the previous status of the project’s building, containing typical elements from the Valencian homes of the 20th century with its vintage cement tiles and ceilings decorated with plaster molds that were maintained without modifications. On the other hand, the aim of the design was to convert the hostel in a more contemporary space with a kind of a „home coziness”, adding decorative elements that could draw attention of different customers and their lifestyle. Therefore, each room was designed with a different look, that could adapt to the personality of each personality. Thus we can recognize the room for the fans of surf, music or the actual ethnic trend. Another aspect to highlight is the use of graphic patterns through the whole project, realized by the Spanish creative consultancy for this project. Above with the purpose of bringing up a major personalized identity for the project all lamps, tables and decorative elements were designed exclusively by Masquespacio, with exception of the chairs and armchairs.

Rooms at the Valencia Lounge Hostel start at 41 dollars per night, www.valencialoungehostel.com, www.masquespacio.com
